7:01 am
good morning to from you new york where the stock market storm has passed this morning after a harrowing five minute free-fall yesterday. good morning, harry. >> reporter: i tell you, there was a few moments yesterday when some of the most important socks in the country were trading for as little as a penny a piece. that's one cent a piece. how this happened and what might happen today, we'll talk about in just a second. >> we will also take you this morning to the gulf of mexico where cleanup crews have finally successfully lowered that dome into the water that they hope will stop the gushing oil leaks there while residents of several states keep a close eye on the shore line. we'll bring you that storynd at rest of the day's news from the studio. but first we foe back to wall street and harry. >> reporter: plenty of high anxiety on wall street yesterday. at one moment the dow jones industrial average dipped almost
7:02 am
1,000 points, the wbiggest singe dip ever. how that happened and what might happen in the future is the question on everybody's mind. and rebecca jarvis is here. what happened here yesterday? >> i can tell you from a firsthand account of being on the floor right ahead of this that very little was happening. it was a relatively tame day on wall street. however, after this market took a mega fall yesterday, the markets around the globe have responded in europe, in az crash throughout the world right now, markets are trading hoer after yesterday's roller coaster ride. it was a free-fall on wall street. in a fan of just 15 minutes, the dow lost 700 points. at its worst, the market was down nearly 1,000. >> it was probably one of the scariest things that i've seen in the street on close to 30 years. >> reporter: by 3:00, it had gained much of the losses back. by the closing bell, stocks
7:03 am
finished down a more modest 347 points. worries over the financial crisis in greece sparked the initial selloff. riots broke out in athens after the government approved budget cuts to keep the country from bankruptcy. investors fear greece's troubles could spread throughout europe, closing a global recovery. >> we hope that the people in the european union can come together and resolve this, that it does not turn out to be the first domino to fall. >> reporter: late in the day surprising reports that the panic may have been caused by a trader hitting the wrong button on a computer. some on wall street speculate an order to sell was placed in the billions instead of millions. >> we did a lot of computer trading, so that pushed the market right down. >> reporter: but while the cause is still under investigation, this roller coaster ride will likely spook investors. >> i'm concerned that the volatility will make them a bit more cautious in their trading oeft next couple of weeks.
7:04 am
that could make markets thinner as fewer participants are in the game. >> the securities and exchange commission says it is reviewing unusual trading and our treasury secretary, timothy geithner, will participate in a call today about greece with finance ministers throughout the world. >> so literally some guy who might have hit three extra zeros with a fat thumb could have -- >> southends implausible. a number of folks on wall street are saying it could be true that this is a result of human error, but it could also be the result in many cases of computerized programs, which are set to trade mega, mega amounts of stocks at any given time. and they're just set without human beings even being participants. in fractions of a second and fraction of a second, in millie
7:05 am
seconds trades get done throughout the world and many are saying that could have exacerbate the down side risk. >> thank you very much. we're also joined this morning by steve forbes, "forbes magazine." thanks for taking the time to spend a few minutes with us. what was your reaction to what happened here yesterday afternoon? >> it shows that even in this age of high-tech knowled techno get eye catching clichs in the system. so there are systemic flaws they'll have to dig out. you can literally do 10,000 trades every second, so they have to figure out what in the world went wrong. you also have systemic -- economic fundamentals at work, too, that help bring this thing down. >> we've been watching the very robust stock market for, you know, several weeks now. people have been buoyed about it, there's a degree of
7:06 am
optimism. but you watch these riots in the streets in greece, you see the european union in a state of disarray. we once talked about piigs not so long ago go, portugal, ireland, greece, spain. if greece has problems, will these other piigs get sick and what might that mean for the rest of us? >> i think determine any today votes on whether they'll go ahead with the bailout for greece. france did it yesterday. they will go ahead. and greece itself, they have very major systemic reforms to make. and the thing that on this to watch is not that greece h have to go through austerity, but will they also make systemic reforms like their tax code which is and itity business so the economy can get back on its feet. you'll see the same thing in britain. will they do it in a way that lets the economy recover. >> because they say the piigs end up may leading to the uk. but there's some self reflection that might be important here, as well, because as we look around the country, states like new york, illinois, california, are
7:07 am
looking at mountains of not only debt but deficit. >> they've got their pension systems are all in major, major deficits. so we have our greeces here and there, illinois, california, new york, new jersey, michigan and others. and they will vee to make systemic reforms. we see that across the river in new jersey. major budget cuts, tax cuts to get these economies reformed. everyone has to get their act together. the wake-up call has come. >> in the short term, what do you anticipate happening today? >> i think initially the markets will take a hiccup and end up the day up. we're up 75%. a pause. not the end of the world. >> and would you go so far as to say you feel like the economy is in a state of recovery? >> the economy is recovering. it's a weak recovery given the magnitude of what happened in 2008, 2009. it's like a baseball team that was losing all the games. now they're only losing half the
7:08 am
games. better than losing all of them, but not yet in the world series. >> steve forbes, we thank you for your expertise. let's go back to our studio at 59th and 5th. check back in with maggie. it is now 7:08 and now we have the latest on the attempted bombing in times square. as new evidence turns up on video, a search is on for the money man who allegedly supplied cash to the suspect. homeland security correspondent bob orr is in washington with the latest. >> reporter: well, investigators indeed are following the money to find out if faisal shahzad hadded any help at all from foreign operatives in paying for the failed attempt to bomb midtown manhattan. this newly obtained home video captures the early moments of the botched times square attack. faisal shahzad's suv is smoking in the background as police and emergency crews button up the scene. in it surveillance tape reveals a piece of evidence now connecting him to the attack. shahzad in a pennsylvania fireworks store, buying the samd
7:09 am
kind of firecrackers used in his poorly built homemade bomb. shahzad made a serieses of mistakes. the day before he drove that black bomb laden nissan pathfinder into times square, shahzad parked a different car, a white isuzu suv in midtown man at that time tan. that was supposed to be his get-away car. but when he panicked the next night, left the keys to both his home and the getaway car in the smoking bomb car. >> during ongoing questioning by federal agents, shahzad has provid provided yoochl information and we will continue to pursue a numb leads as we gather intelligence. >> reporter: investigators still are trying to pin down what ties shahzad may have had to terrorists overseas. sources say there is evidence that shahzad visited a mosque and a training camp connected to the same terrorist group blamed for the killing of "wall street journal" reporter dan quell pearl. and the suspect has told interrogate informations he'sed a contact with operatives inside the pakistani taliban and this
7:10 am
he's been inspired by an with an arrest awlaki. but financial pressure may have also played a role. video reveals he lived a spartan exist tense. his kitchen was nearly empty. and his bedroom had an air mattress on the floor. we're told shahzad continues to cooperate with interrogators, but sources say he's showing no remorse at all. in fact rgts he seems proud of what did he and he's told u.s. officials that he wanted to strike a blow to avenge u.s. drone attacks in pakistan. >> bob orr in washington this morning. thank you. we saw the surveillance tape of the suspect buying fireworks in pennsylvania. chris nemeth is the store clerk who sold them to shahzad and he's here this morning. >> nice to meet you. >> nice to might, as well. so this bombing attempt happened on may 1st. when did shahzad buy the fireworks? >> he purchased them march #th.
7:11 am
8th. >> so two months earlier. how did he pay for it. >> >> he paid with cash. >> you have the receipt. dove to ask for any i.d. or anything? >> yes, it's required by state that you that every customer that comes in has to show a permit -- or a state issued i had pi indication card. >> what did he have? >> he had a connecticut license. >> with his real name? >> yes. >> so everything seemed to pass the smell test so far. >> correct. >> how much did he buy? >> he bought eight boxes and phantom fire work, everyone's buy one get one free. >> so he bought item of these? >> correct. >> and if you think of eight of these going off at the same time, what kind of bang would it produce? >> they're not supposed to go off at the same time or they can't really chain react pl temperature just give a gentle pop. >> so anything about his demeanor or anything at all that
7:12 am
raised a red red flag to you? >> no, he came in calm, a very unremarkable customer. didn't raise any red flag. just seemed like a typical american average guy. >> would montwo months later, as come into your score to question you and it that's when you sigh see the surveillance video and frng what? >> it gave me the chills at first. i couldn't remember the day until i saw the video and memories started to come back. >> what type of questions it authorities ask you, the same time i'm asking you? >> pretty much, yes. >> and what did they say about the investigation? >> they just wanted me to identify the guy and try to help them out as best as i possibly could. >> how does it feel to know that you came in such close contact with a man suspension of a terror attack in. >> the thought never crossed my mind that i would be dealing with someone that wanted to harm our country. >> ask it change anything in the way do you business or in the way you go about your day? >> no, i treat everyone the
7:13 am
same. >> what about management, what did they tell you? >> it wasn't until monday when i had the possibility that it could have beened at our store and then tuesday the authorities came and that's when my boss told me i had to come down and talk to the authorities. >> as far as you know, are they going change anything in the way that they do business? >> not to my knowledge right now, no. >> all right, chris nemeth, thank you so much. good to have you here. >> nice to meet you. it is thousand now 7:13. time to get the rest of the headlines. good morning. new hampshire police say a bomb scare involving a greyhound bus was not a terrorist e67b9. a nine hour standoff ended last night in ports mouth and the last of 17 passengers traveling from maine to new york city finally got off with hands up and is being questioned. it's unclear why, but he had refused to leeft bus. it started before noon with a 911 call of a bomb on that bus. no bomb was found. lettuce sold in 23 states is
7:14 am
being recalled. romaine lettuce oig may be contaminated with e. coli. it's sold undert fresh with the day and imperial sysco labels. 12 people were hospitalized after eating the lettuce. ten more cases are being investigated. in the gulf of mexico this morning, the moment of truth is approaching as workers try to cap that huge oil leak. cbs news correspondent mark strassmann is in venice, louisiana. good morning, mark. >> good morning, betty. right now a mile below the surface, underwater robots are circling the biggest leak of all putting the latest best hope into place. it's all, of course, a great deal of pressure here because nothing so far has stopped the leak from gushing or stopped the continuous pressure to find the right fix. waves of oil are now making landfall in the chandeleur islands, barrier islands that protect louisiana's fragile coast and that's pushing the efforts of thousands of workers battling the spill.
7:15 am
the biggest project got underway thursday night at 10:00 p.m., a crane began lowering this 40 foot tall 100-ton concrete and steel containment box almost a mile down to the source of the leaking oil. it's an extremely ambitious approach, never tried before in water so deep. >> i think the rick is going to be to get over that hole. that's like looking for a needle in the haystack, although they know where the needle is. >> reporter: engineers hope the containment box k5u78ed a cover dam h trap as much as 85% of the spill and funnel it up through a pipe to tankers on the surface. if all goes well, it could be operating by sunday. but environmentalists say it may already be too late for much of the gulf's ecosystem. >> we're losing because the oil is in the water column and right now, it's killing things that we can't see. >> reporter: bp is also fighting the leak with more than 160,000 gallons of chemical dispersants. these dis% events attach to the oil and break up its density.
7:16 am
oil droplets sink to the ocean floor. but the dispersants include toxic chemicalses, so toxic critics say they may do more harm and the oil itself. >> just because we don't see dead birds on the beaches doesn't mean that we don't have a serious wildlife problem. >> reporter: once this containment box gets in to place, this process gets tricky and dangerous again as the oil is trapped and brought to the surface, the mix of oil, water and gas has to be separated. get it wrong, and there could be another explosion. betty? >> cbs' mark strassmann in vep miss, louisiana p about thank you. there's no clear winner this morning in britain's elections and now the race is on to form a new government. no party won enough votes in yesterday's election to control parliamentment about gordon brown's labour party came in second to david cameron's conservatives. but because he is prime minister, brown gets the first crack at forming a new coalition government. and britain's prince harry has been selected to train as an a patchy helicopter pilot.
7:17 am
harry has completed basic pilot school and gets his wings today. the a patchy is designed to hunt and destroy tankses and is used extensively in afghanistan. he's already served there as an air controller. it is friday and we do want to get a check of the weather. dave price is here with first look. >> we have an active weather map. take a look at the

folks on the plaza cheering loud enough to be blissfully unaware of what happened on wall street on thursday. oh, my gosh. you talk about panic and a sense of forebodying, that moment there yesterday afternoon when the stock market dropped almost 1,000 points, people really weren't sure what was going on. we of course with a much better idea now. we talked to rebecca jarvis, we talked to teach forbes. in up a can he will minuting we'll talk to jill schlesinger. jill of course is at cbs "moneywatch," we've had her on money time before. if you're an individual investor, if you have a 401(k), you're concerned about what you should do now, say tuned because
7:31 am
she'll be joining us in a couple of minutes with some real live wall street wisdom. maggie, good morning again. >> good morning. but first at 7:30, another giant problem for lawrence taylor. the pro football hall of famer has had brushes with the law in the past, but now he's facing charges of raping a teenaged girl. jeff glor is in ramapo, new york with the details. >> reporter: good morning. lawrence taylor is free this morning on $75,000 bail. and you're right, he has been in trouble before. but never like this. police took taylor into custody thursday and charged him with third degree sexual assault. >> the investigation indicates that mr. taylor engaged in sexual intercourse with a child less than 17 for which he paid the victim $300. >> reporter: the 51-year-old is accused of having sex with a 16-year-old runaway who place
7:32 am
say was forced into prostitution by a man who beat her before taking her to taylor. police say they found out when the girl sent text messages to her uncle. >> he is charged with rape. lawrence taylor did not rape anybody. >> reporter: the two-time super bowl winner is arguably the greatest defensive player in super bowl history, a map who redefined the sport with fearless pass rushes. but the same recklessing a agrees he broit to the field continued off it. in 1996, '97, and '98, he was arrested on drug possession charges. in 2009, for fleeing the scene of an accident in miami. >> lawrence has had a long history of illegal problems. none of this or anything involving lawrence taylor like this is surprising at all. >> reporter: during a 2003 interview with mike wallace on "60 minutes," taylor discussed his addiction to cocaine. >> $1,000 a day on company taken. >> oh, yeah. it was a hell of an extensive
7:33 am
party. that party never ended. >> reporter: in recent year, he's tried to rehabilitate his image with appearances on "dancing with the stars" and the a and e documentary fame and recovery. taylor is due back in court in june. he faces up to five years in prison if convicted. making dwi? >> jeff glor in ramapo, new york. thank you. let's take a closer look at the charges. joining us is christopher saint lawrence, he is police commissioner of the town of rama ramapo. is there any physical received or is it just her story that these charges are based on? >> i can't talk about any evidence that was taken from the room, although our police did take forensic evidence from the scene of the hotel.
7:34 am
>> are there any witnesses from the holliday inn that also pack up the story? >> there are witnesses that saw mr. taylor there.bpack up the story? >> there are witnesses that saw mr. taylor there.ack up the story? >> there are witnesses that saw mr. taylor there. there are no witnesses to describe the situation with the young girl. >> but they can place him at the scene? >> absolutely. >> when her uncle, when the young lady's uncle contacted the police, did he have any idea that it was haur lawrence taylor that she was accusing of rape? >> we did not know that at that time, however, the victim did relay that message, our police knew who we were going in after at room 160 in the holiday inn an as you know, there's a continuing investigation both here and in new york city with multiple agencies right now.d a continuing investigation both here and in new york city with multiple agencies right now. looking also at are a she'd caves and the potential of human trafficking. >> who was mr. taylor's demeanor when you went to arrest him? >> his demeanor was he was not
7:35 am
combative. he was cooperative with the police. he can wait want to go into the room. we did that allow him to do that and we recovered items in that men's room. >> how do you predict this case will wind up? >> i think there will be two sirds. one will focus in on the human trafficking with hasheed davis and that is something we still have the ability to charge him with here in this jurisdiction, but presently we're allowing morning city and other agencies to work on the human trafficking. and we will continue pursuing who was the contact person rasheed davis and mr. taylor. >> because this young lady was
7:36 am
supposest reportedly a prostitute. >> i wouldn't character i rise her a prostitute. she was a 15-year-old runaway who turned 16 over the last few months and who was taken advantage of in this situation. >> yes. prostitute if that's the word definitely against her will. we got that. thank you, sir. now let's bring in jack ford. >> in new york as in most did your jurisdictionses, it says if you have sexual intercourse with somebody under age, it's a crime. third degree felony, no if, ands or butts about it. >> even if she consented. >> even if she consented. it's interesting because as a matter of public policy, our law has said we have to protect people. here 16 says you are not capable of consenting. so even if it it was a situation where it was a situation where romantically were involved, the law still says at 16 you can't legally give your consent. so if you engage in sexual
7:37 am
intercourse with somebody who is 16, you're in trouble. >> what if he didn't know she was 16? >> that's the one that's always puzzling about this. the law also says if you were ignorant about that fact, that's unfortunate. it's your fault. you are charged. the individual is charged with making sure if you're going to have sexual relations with somebody, they are, indeed, above the age of consent. >> will his prior legal troubles be a factor in this case? >> they will in a couple of ways. if it goes to trial, the jury probably won't hear at all about this because they're unrelated. but his prior problems could be a difficulty if they're trying to work out a deal for him because the prosecutor might say she looked older than 16, so we're willing to give you help on that, but the fact that he's been in trouble before, it's harder to get a better deal. >> jack ford, thank you. we want to switch gears and go back to dave for another look at the weather. let's hit the forecast right
7:38 am
now.

we're on the floor of the new york stock exchange with jill schlesinger from cbs money >> reporter: >> almost 1,000 point drop at one point during the day. there was panic, there was anxiety. and then by the end of the day, some relief. but, jill, as we stand here today, people at home, the individual investor, folks who have their 401(k)s, are very concerned about what should they be acting today, should they be
7:43 am
acting just in case something like this happens again. >> i used to tell my clients don't focus on any one day. and that's the truth. the reality is if you had a diversified portfolio yesterday, and i'm not talking about a whacky diversified before 40% stocks, 40 portion bonds, some cash and some gold, you didn't have a terrible day yesterday. instead 6 beiof being down 3%, were only down 1.5%. with a diversified port follow i don't, you should sleep pretty well at night. >> for the foreseeable future? >> every day is a wild ride down here. it's been thus forever. the reality is if you're a long term investor, you know every single day can be crazy, but in the long term, you stick to your game plan, you should be doing quite well. >> people will be freaked out, though, to know some of the nuts and bolts of what went wrong on thursday. these millions of shares being
7:44 am
tratded at millie second speeds, sometimes at tiny little fre fractions of share points. if you're sitting at home saying, geez, i just bought general electric, shy ould i be freaked out? >> no, you shouldn't. maybe this is a glitch, but we've had many days and years where we've had billions shares trading back and forth and nothing like this has happened. so to have a couple of these every few year, not crazy. but don't focus on the glitches. focus on your game plan. every quarter, pull that statement out. stop relying on cnbc, cbs, anything else. you look and you say what is my game plan. go in there, rebalance, review. when you rebalance your portfolio, it formses to you sell high and buy low. and it's an amazing thing. all of a sudden you're forced to do what we've been trying to do
7:45 am
forever. >> what a man tractitra, right? from the stand point of an individual investor, you say get your face away from the screen. don't sit this every day and look at every little hiccup of the market, get a little more discreet distance. >> absolutely. my first job was here on the floor. my uncle was a specialist. he turned to me one day and said you should never make a big trading decision in the middle of a day like today. so if you're really thinking about making a decision, make it over the weekend, make sure it fits in with your game plan. >> thanks so much. we'll be right back. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. ♪ daisy, do a dollop

continues his remarkable comeback. >> it's good to be back. >> reporter: when you were doing this role, what would be the first thing that would go through your head when you'd wake up and say today i get to be tony stark? >> i would say, yeah, it's good to be the king and also heavy is the head that wears the crown because we were expanding the scope of the story we were telling and i felt personally responsible for kind of delivering on that promise. >> reporter: when iron man first lifted off in 2008, it made a whopping $585 million worldwide. that success launched robert downey jr. into the holly a-listers. a sequel was inevitable. >> we returned to kind of the heart of the matter with tony, which is he has a very fragile existence. >> reporter: fragile because the brilliant and talented stark is also bent on self destruction, drowning his troubles in alcohol

you have given your wife, susan, credit for making you the man that you are today. what is it about her that has made you who you are? >> we're really well matched and she actually has more of a secret identity than most super heros in that she's very kind of stoic and businesslike on the outside and yet i get to see a side of her that is really reserved for our private times and we're just super close. >> what's the best piece of advice she's ever given you? >> shut up. >> reporter: do you ever regret not taking any of her advice and what would that have been? >> we have really good therapeutic tools that we use, things that go to stay current with each other and to really practice listening and stuff, you know. >> reporter: like what? >> like this is a good one. if you're with your partner and you're driving somewhere that takes more than 10 or 15 minutes, we have a thing where either one of us can say to the other one go and that means you're supposed to start just venting and saying whatever
8:37 am
comes up. trying not cross talk too much because if my vent is all about her character defects, then she's going to spend her vent defending herself, but rather if we just talk about ourselves in a general way or saying that we understand each other's point of view, even if we don't entirely, it's very helpful. >> reporter: i might have to try that one. >> now, i asked him if he took home any of those cool iron man suits after filming had ended and he said that the director, who is also in the film, gave him a helmet, but the house is under his wife's jurisdiction, so she gets to decide where it will be displayed. could i tell by that laugh that happens in your house? >> somebody's got to be in charge and it better not be me. and that whole therapy thing, it sounded like some of our staff meetings. now, if there is -- if there was an unavoidable sequel for "iron man," will there be an iron man 3? >> downey says if there is one,
